Woodcroft in EM
Sadly, this layout was damaged during recent vandalism at our Stamford Show. Repair work is underway however and we are confident the layout will be back on the exhibition circuit soon.
Originally built by David Smith a former chairman of the club.
Woodcroft is a small through station on an imaginary single-track line built to give access to Stamford from the Great Northern main line. It's main purpose was to allow for through running of coaches from King's Cross via Peteborough to Stamford.
The station has a single platform and a run round loop for goods trains. A small brickyard in the vicinity (so typical of the area) with sidings gives much useful goods traffic. For this exhibition, the layout is operated in the GNR or LNER period.
This layout has been purchased by the club and has been re-wired during 2014.
